MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Nassau County will increase police patrols around temples, synagogues, churches and other houses of worship for the upcoming Passover and Easter holidays.

“While there have been no specific threats, we are always at a heightened level of police presence during the high holy holidays, and this season is no exception,” Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano said Tuesday.

Mangano is reminding residents that if they “See Something, Say Something,” and report anything suspicious, including unattended packages outside houses of worship, malls or high traffic areas, to the police.

“In these dangerous times, it is critical that we all be aware of our surroundings and the ‘See Something, Say Something’ initiative is a great way to raise awareness and protect our citizens,” Mangano.  “Residents can help be the eyes and ears for the Police Department.”

Police will use information from previous crimes over the years to determine where criminal activity may occur and take the proper precautions.

“We are vigilant, and we are alert,” said acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter.

Barry Dov Schwartz, the former rabbi of Temple B’nai Sholom in Rockville Centre, is hoping for a peaceful holiday.

“For both Jews and Christians, this is the season of spring, season of hope and season of redemption,” Schwartz said.
